It's basically humanly impossible to register a pen's button press without
first producing some movement reports. You have to hold the pen within range
for it to register, and it's hard to hold it still enough within range to not
produce movement reports, while also trying to press a button. I think we're
safe here.

If there are any buttons on the frame, then it's likely possible to
distinguish their reports from the pen ones by looking at the report contents
before discarding.
